About time I posted a quick guide for installing Centmin Mod so here it is :)

Centmin Mod v1.2.3 background info http://centminmod.com/centminmod_v123.html

Requirements:

  • Fresh CentOS 6.x based 32bit or 64bit installation (CentOS minimal ISO recommended)
  • Minimum 256MB memory available. With some tweaks outlined here, you can install on 128MB memory based VPS. But recommend at least 256MB memory.
  • 25 - 60 minutes of your time depending on speed of your server, network speed (for downloads/yum etc).
Links:

General Notes:

  • For Xen 32bit OS users on 64bit host nodes, please read FAQ note regarding ARCH_OVERRIDE value you need to enable for Centmin Mod or Original Centmin script to work.
  • If your SSH2 Telnet client options allow for it you can increase the size of your scroll back buffer size to allow larger amounts of outputted text to be shown via scrolling back and forth.

Install:

Download to any directory EXCEPT /tmp as scripts won't be executable from /tmp


yum -y install bc
wget http://centminmod.com/download/centmin-v1.2.3-eva2000.03.zip
unzip centmin-v1.2.3-eva2000.03.zip
cd centmin-v1.2.3mod
chmod +x centmin.sh
./centmin.sh

then hit menu option #1

Huh interesting!  Thanks!  I used to do everything by hand (no real scripts) but I guess it's time to use the tools I'm given instead of doing everything by hand.  Although I will admit this does seem too specialized towards Nginx but I'm not complaining :)

Thanks, Centmin Mod still gives you plenty of opportunity to get your hands semi dirty if you want to as well. Or handy to have some mundane tasks scripted for :D

Doh had the all important annotations disabled by accident, so the blog embedded video wasn't showing the useful annotation commentary during install :eek:

All fixed now, removed iv_load_policy=3 to set annotations to enabled by default

Yeah publicly, just now - had github local/push syncing issues with all the GUI based apps until I found Sourcetree which worked the best http://www.sourcetreeapp.com. One of my Centmin Mod users recommended the app to me :)

Centmin Mod's Google+ Community has moved to a dedicated community forum at http://community.centminmod.com.

Forums are hosted on a 4GB VPS server using Centmin Mod auto installer based Nginx 1.7.1 with Nginx PageSpeed module enabled, PHP 5.5.13 + Zend OpCache, MariaDB MySQL 5.5.37 and Memcached 1.4.20 server = fast page load speed  :D

Thanks

I downloaded Camtasia 30 day trial and wow ! Produced my best ever Centmin Mod installation video - only takes 5 minutes of a viewers time to see the latest SSH one liner install method :D

 

Dual installation video, I simultaneously installed Centmin Mod .08 beta on both CentOS 6.6 + CentOS 7.0 servers :D
